ATLANTA -- Mims Bledsoe, the owner of The Pie Shop, has been baking since she was a child and she recently opened the shop to showcase her skills.
The former University of Georgia masters candidate left school to realize her passion of artisan baking and providing a “slice of happiness” for those who wish to have one.
Bledsoe says she took up baking because it “requires skill and is very feminine”. The theme of her shop is also very feminine; she chose a peach colored storefront to pay homage to Georgia Peaches and the bold black and white lettering as an ode to Coco Chanel, a designer revered by many old guard Southern Belles.
The Pie Shop is quintessentially southern and the pies are absolutely splendid. Check her out at 3210E Roswell Road in Atlanta.
